Comments A Majority of Scoundrels: An Informal History of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company

  • Greg Strandberg

    This was a great history of the American fur trapping industry in the late-1820s and early- to mid-1830s. The book was written in 1961 and I highly recommend it.It’s a good history of the Upper Missouri fur trade after Lewis and Clark. It’s very detailed. There’s a very good account of the 1828 rendezvous haul, which the men hauled back down to St. Louis themselves, meaning $2 a pound better on furs.I liked the anecdotes and stories.

    I totally stalled out on this one and now it's due back at the library so unfinished it will be! I loved Trask by Don Berry but found this book too impersonal without characters I could latch on to. Sigh


  • Ed Keith

    A great read. A new perspective on trappers as well as the role they played in the history of the west.


  • Dale

    Such fun to explore the history of the American west and get to know characters like Jedediah Smith.


  • John

  • Gary

    One of the best studies of the Mountain men and their trade.
